Opis książki

Rich with illustrative case material, this book guides mental health professionals to break the cycle of at-risk behavior by engaging adolescents and their families in home, school, and community contexts. The authors explore the multigenerational patterns that shape the lives of poor and ethnic minority adolescents and present innovative strategies for intervening beyond the walls of the agency or clinic. Grounded in research, the book shows how to implement both home-based family therapy and school-based achievement mentoring to provide a comprehensive web of support. Building on the earlier Reaching Out in Family Therapy, this book reflects the ongoing development of the authors' multisystems approach and many other important changes in the field; the majority of the content is completely new. It is an indispensable resource for beginning and experienced professionals or text for courses on adolescent intervention or adolescent mental health. "This is a remarkable volume that speaks to new ways to deliver services to hard-to-reach youth and families. The authors' innovative community-based approach to prevention and treatment has sound theoretical and empirical support, which will encourage practitioners to adopt it. Students who want to become true catalysts of change will find the stories and examples refreshing and invigorating."--Leonard A. Jason, PhD, Department of Psychology, DePaul University "Sure to become a classic, this landmark book offers readable, comprehensive guidelines for dealing with the complex problems of youth at risk and their families. The book highlights key dimensions--from school to health care to employment and life cycle stresses--demonstrating the pernicious impact of racism and societal scapegoating and offering helpful suggestions for intervention. Both authors bring long experience to this difficult subject, addressing issues of drugs and alcohol, domestic violence, teen pregnancy, gang involvement, and child abuse. Every therapy student should have this book as a key reference. It makes dramatically clear the value of coordinating therapy and developing coalitions with school professionals, health care providers, and agency personnel."--Monica McGoldrick, LCSW, PhD (h.c.), Director, Multicultural Family Institute, Highland Park, New Jersey "Boyd-Franklin and Bry have produced a book that could not be more timely and relevant to mental health professionals in community and educational settings. Scholarly and practical, this work will have an impact on treatment of adolescent
